Hi Andrew,

Can you fold the patch below into this patch 7? It is based on the discussion
with Dan Carpenter at
It prevents invalid new_order input from causing unexpected outcome of
split_huge_page_to_list_to_order(). Especially in patch 8, new_order can come
from debugfs without any restriction. I will send another fixup to
patch 8 to check new_order from debugfs.
